Product Description

From the Inside Flap

With forty-four "New York Times bestselling novels to her credit, Sandra Brown is one of romance's best-loved authors. She has been hailed by "Rendezvous magazine as an author whose "larger than life heroes and heroines make you believe all the warm, wonderful, wild things in life."
Sexy, funny, and wonderfully romantic, here is the unforgettably sensuous story of a woman too smart to fall in love -- and the man determined to prove her wrong.
Thursday's Child
Allison Leamon knew that pretending to be her identical twin sister was a bad idea. For although the two redheads looked exactly alike, they couldn't be more different. How could a no-nonsense scientist like Allison possibly fool anyone into thinking that she was the bubbly, vivacious Annie?
Trading her sensible shoes for strappy sandals, her eyeglasses for contacts, and her lab smock for a chiffon dress, Allison was determined to try her best. Her first challenge was a dinner date with Annie's fiance, Davis. But what Allison didn't expect was the presence of Davis's best friend.
Allison was far too logical to believe in love at first sight, but there was nothing logical about the way she was responding to Spencer Raft. The dark-haired, blue-eyed mystery man had an assurance that Allison found positively maddening.
And by the end of the evening, she couldn't help feeling that Spencer had been attracted to a carefully constructed illusion. She was certain that the handsome adventurer wouldn't give her a second look if he knew her as she really was.
But Spencer Raft was a man of many talents -- and seeing below the surface of things was one of them. He sensed the flesh-and-blood woman beneath theelaborate charade, and after years of wandering the world in search of excitement, he knew he had finally found what he had been looking for.
But first this incurable romantic had to convince an intractable skeptic that there was more to love than what she could study in a laboratory. And what better way than to propose a passionate experiment of his own?
On board his yacht, Spencer and Allison would fulfill their wildest fantasies and deepest desires; but when their blissful idyll was over, would it all prove to be no more than a pleasant interlude -- or the real thing?

"From the Hardcover edition.

HASH(0x8adfe360) out of 5 stars A romantic quick read 31 Jan. 2002
By Ann M. Macpherson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have read other books by Sandra Brown and have always enjoyed her writing--knowing that it's well done but not thick with plot and mystery. This novel was about twins trading places for a few days-----two women who were completely different in every way except in their looks. Having lived with twin girls in nursing school, I know that this is very easily done----it's especially easy when someone meets them for the first time and doesn't "know" them as well as close friends would. I found this story to be believable with a little different twist on it----Allison finding romance and love in an unlikely man who first thought that she was Annie.
I must admit, however, that I was quite irritated when Spencer was so persistent and intense when he was trying to get "Ann" to leave Davis for him-----when it was actually Allison---who was not the one engaged to Davis. I find it hard to swallow that any many would be that heavy into a pursuit of his best friend's fiance. I think most decent men would be a little bit more subtle. I also thought at the time that perhaps he had caught on to the thought that this was the "other" twin----after he was told she had an identical twin. I thought the portrayal of Spencer as such a "wolf" was not too realistic. And then to have him turn around and become such a romantic, so suave----hard to fathom.
I read this book in just a couple of hours----a very fast read. It didn't have much of a plot, no mystery, no deaths----just pure romance and love. A fun book when you want to "escape" for a few hours.

HASH(0x8adfe468) out of 5 stars I would not recommend this book 9 Feb. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was very disappointed in Thursdays Child. I found the plot to simple and silly. I don't mind reading a simple book , but I found that this book was to unbelieveable. The charactors behaved in away that I don't think anyone would or at least I hope they would'nt. The book seems to have been written with no thought. I found that all the books that Sandra Brown has done early in her career and has had reprinted have been written that way. If you want to read a good Sandra Brown book pick up any of her new books, those are written with thought and substance.

HASH(0x8adfe834) out of 5 stars Absolutely ludicrous! 3 May 2002
By amyincanton - Published on
Format: Hardcover
It is amazing to me that the same person who wrote the wonderfully written "Envy" and "The Alibi" is the same author who wrote this idiotic shlock! The characters behaved so unrealistically--basically in a way to allow Ms. Brown to continue writing a story. It was absolutely ludicrous to me that the first time Spencer appeared at Ann's condo thinking Allison was Ann, Allison didn't just tell him the truth right then and there. It was also ludicrous that Ann would have thought it was perfectly acceptable for her fiance to passionately kiss and fondle her twin sister while Ann was in the hospital. I also found it totally unbelievable that Allison was SO fearful about losing her virginity. It just didn't seem realistic that she would be so passionately caught up in the moment, and then suddenly become too fearful. I also thought it was unrealistic that Spencer would hide the fact that he was a successful stamp collector even from his best friend. In real life, that deception would never have occurred--but it occurred in this sophmoric novel simply to keep a little bit of reader suspense until the end. Even the very steamy lovemaking scenes did not make this book worth reading. This is the second twin-switching Sandra Brown novel I read, and I didn't enjoy "The Switch" either.

HASH(0x8adfed80) out of 5 stars If you're looking for fluff... 13 Nov. 2002
By Jenna4 - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback've found it here. I read this book in one day while traveling. Started it on a cross-country flight and finished it in my hotel room that evening. The story is fairly well done, however like one of the previous reviewers I agree that Spencer's character should have seen through the "switch" plot and not been so surprised by it. The story was very predictable but perfect "fluff" for reading while traveling.

HASH(0x8adfee88) out of 5 stars Not worth your time 23 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I've been reading Sandra Brown books since I was 16 years old. I know her work has never been big on plots, but it has always been entertaining and, every now and then, you discover a gem.
This book was not a gem.
To say I didn't like the book is putting it mildly. I had to force myself to keep reading it. Near the end I found myself skipping pages just so I could reach the end faster. And when I did finish, I threw the book across the room because I hated it so much.
This novel is a reprint of Sandra Brown's earlier works -- that's obvious by the end of the first chapter. It's based on an unbelievable premise and the characters are not likable. You can't sympathize or empathize with them. Why does a woman who's already engaged get a breast enlargement to please her fiancee? Who becomes a millionaire buying stamps? And why would a woman want to get pregnant with a man she barely knows?
Don't read the book. You'll hate yourself for wasting a couple hours of your life once you've finished.
